The second half of April proved to be quite tricky and frustrating and we ended up giving some money back to the bookies, but with seven winners already on the books for the month, it's going to be a profitable one anyway and we'll end up with an ROI of at least 27.3%.
Last week was the usual kind of story with 4 of the 6 picks making the frame, but it was just one of those weeks where we didn't convert enough placers into cash. There's no point fretting about these things, we'll be back amongst the winners soon enough.
More long-term, the overall figures for 2019 still look strong after almost a third of the year, we're hitting as many winners as our historical average says we should (we're actually a couple of winners in front of par) and the ROI is excellent.
